Granddad visits alone
The very next day Granddad walked to the bottom of his garden.
There he stood leaning on the gate thinking of the day before
Remembering what a lovely dream he thought he had yesterday
As he thought of Sadie, the little gate gently swung open,
This made him jump a little, and there was the meadow.
Where they had walked with all the wild flowers growing,
Buttercups and daisy’s and many others he saw yesterday.
Sadie had told Granddad that this is where the children spend hours
Making daisy chains, and sometimes they made buttercup chains.
The buttercup chains are made for their friends that are too big for daisy chains.
Sadie hadn’t told him what friends were too big and left it at that.
Granddad walked across the meadow, to the wooden bridge.
Across the bridge the whole place became really beautiful.
It was as if it sent out a feeling that brought the scene deep inside
It was a feeling of Love this made Granddad happy and seemed to lift his spirits a lot.
On the right there was a ball pit for the children, with rainbow coloured balls.
They seemed to float around as if held by the breeze.
There was a sand pit for the younger children,
With sand that was the most beautiful golden colour.
The colours seemed to be glowing and warm where ever Granddad looked.
There was a smallish lake Stretching out toward a waterfall
The lake was for the children to swim in Sadie had told him.
The children seemed to be away at the moment.
Then he remembered that Sadie had said that they all go to the Lyceum
The children all attended lessons, so that’s where they are, he thought
A little further up the waterfall, seemed to let the water fall as soft rain.
The water looked as if it was made of silver silk.
There was a pathway on its left side, which slowly climbed upward.
The path reached up into the low hills, to become a beautiful mountain.
Above the mountain there was an eagle flying slowly in circles.
Granddad thought it looked as if the Eagle was smiling at him.
It dipped its wing toward Granddad, as if to say I see you there.
To the left Granddad saw Sally’s Bungalow Sadie had told him that it had the most beautiful garden
a person could ever wish for, with all the flowers in full bloom.
Sadie had told him that, he could go and see Sally.
Sadie also said that she would come to the door, offering him a cup of tea with two sugars.
If you are really, really, lucky, Sally will make you some special lemonade and some little cakes.
Sadie had said that the lemonade and cakes were for the children that would visit her.
Granddad could see a track along side Sally’s bungalow, but Sadie had told Granddad that it is too far for
him to go.
Rose cottage, was next to Sally’s, and as Sadie said the person that lives there is away at the moment
on a journey some place, but would be there later, then he could meet them.
Granddad walked on past Rose Cottage along by the beautiful woods where it curved around to the path by the waterfall.
From Rose cottage back round to the waterfall is a lovely play area between the wood and the lake on the right.
The woods, had trees from everywhere that Granddad can remember.
Unlike other woods it is friendly and lets you walk there as you wish to.
Sometimes the bird songs will join you, or you can sit in the open glades with a quiet that is like a duvet of softest silk.
At the edge of the woods, looking out over the pools and waterfall towards the mountain,
Granddad saw that a seat had been placed at the edge of the wood facing the waterfall and lake area.
The seat was like none that Granddad had seen before, or sat on. It seemed to be made of wood.
Seemingly made of the most beautiful timber, or something that looks like timber.
Looking soft and inviting as none before carved from the most beautiful tree you could think of.
Granddad sat down on the seat, it was like belonging to the earth and sky and all the things in
He heard Sadie laugh in the distance somewhere and her little voice seemed to speak inside of him
“The seat is for you Granddad, to sit while talking to the children, or whoever passes by while you are here.
Granddad thought, this is so wonderful, “I will come and talk with Sadie and the children, maybe others sometimes”, whoever the others would be, thought Granddad.
I will ask if it is ok to bring Grandma here he thought, with that, there was a whisper inside his head that sang, “Yes Granddad you are both so welcome here” It sounded like Sadie softly calling, but the thought of Grandma closed the gate behind Granddad and he walked happily up the garden path to tell Grandma.
Granddad and Grandma’s Visit
Granddad was so thrilled that Grandma could visit the places that Sadie had shown him the days before, so off they both went to the bottom of the garden, and as they approached the gate Granddad called Sadie’s name. The gate swung open to greet them both and they walked slowly through.
Granddad showed Grandma all the things, the meadow, the bridge, then along past Sally’s bungalow and Rose Cottage, Grandma was so overjoyed at being there and the love of all the things she saw seemed to bounce around as if a rainbow had flown past them.
They arrived at the Seat and It held them both as if it was part of them. The waterfall seemed to make soft music as its waters floated down, not as it seemed daring to splash, but a little one here and there caught the sun and sent out a spray of colour that whispered to the light, I need you, the light obeyed and ran with the spray making it full of rainbow sparkles.
“Jello”! “Jello”! I love Yellow a little sing song brought
Them both out of the dream they were enjoying.
“Hello Sadie” Granddad said and introduced her to Grandma, as the little girl plonked herself between them on the seat in a flurry of fluffy yellow material , her bright brownish hair floated around her impish face in beautiful ringlets.
Sadie laughed and said “Did I frighten you as you both seemed to be sleeping”? “I was watching the waterfall little one” he said “it just captured my thoughts” Grandma just smiled and nodded “Dreaming, Dreaming ” Sadie shrilled .
” But we have things to see today Granddad, I thought it was time that you both met our group here then you will know who’s who” she laughed, “You know Sadie” she laughed, ” It’s me with Jello! Yellow! that’s my favourite colour, everything is lovely yellow, I love Yellow!” she said to Granddad and Grandma “As it is like sunshine”.
“Here comes our Charlie, he was our channels little boy but never touched the earth plain as a boy, but has grown here with us.
“He talks to his Mummy a lot of the time, but plays here with the others, now he is now 7 or 8 can’t tell really, with his mop of golden hair he is loved by all that meet him. He has grown so well with us, as we all learn here.”
A broad smile grew across Charlie’s face as he sent out a bundle of love that swept over them both and Sadie, “Hello” he smiled and it seemed so lovely and warm it flowed around them. He sat on the seat with us and the seat now seemed larger and curved a little so that they could see him properly without having to turn, or that was the impression it gave.
A lovely girl walked up to us there and Sadie said “This is Julie she belonged to a lady that is the niece of our channel and stayed on the earth plain for a week and then returned to us here. There is always a reason for the little ones to return, but that is of tomorrow things. When all things are made clear, to those that are of the earth plain. These are all lessons and teaching’s she said softly.”
Julie stood tall and so beautiful in her way, with flowing Blonde hair, and the thing that stood out was that Julie was wearing a beautiful pair of black patent leather shoes. Julie said “Hello you must be Granddad and Grandma” as proper as could be, Sadie had told them that Julie was one to be correct in her ways, it was just so and they all loved her for it, as they loved all the children.
Julie was also around 8 to 9 years old in appearance. Julie sat at the end where the seat curved for her to sit, holding her just so.
The children went a little quiet, as up came a young lad, Sadie said to Granddad and Grandma “This is Robert he seems to be 7 or 8 but age is not to worry about, Robert doesn’t talk as we do for as long as we have known him, he has never said a word in any Language, but he think talks, which is a little hard for him, but he is being taught how things are done here, as he goes to school with the others.”
There walking on the grass with a big smile was a boy of about five wearing a tweedy jacket of rough texture and a kilt that was black green and red with tartan socks poking out of his Bobby Shafto shoes’ all topped off with a Tam O’ Shanter hat impishly placed on the side of his head, This is David who used to play and talk with our Lady when she was a young girl he would visit her as Sadie has visited you, but as they were both young it was just to play, with that he sat on the grass in front of Granddad and Grandma.
“Here is the last of our children but not the least” Sadie said, approaching us was a beautiful young girl from what they thought was the early Victorian age, about the 1820’s, wearing a little bonnet that made her ringlets spill out from under the brim, and a little way down to her shoulders, “This is Rebecca “, Sadie said “Hello Rebecca” they said “Hello Grandma and Granddad” she replied with a slow deliberate voice that seemed to be as soft as silk , Sadie told them that Rebecca couldn’t talk when they first met, and that she had taught her to talk and think talk, Rebecca told them that she was from a long time ago, and was lost for a while, until Sadie came and fetched her, since then she has stayed with Sadie and the others, “I am growed” she said “I am 8 and a half, going on 9 and a half. We stay together, together, here and help all the children we meet, as they arrive here with us, or if Sadie has to fetch them”.
Granddad and Grandma left the fetching bit and accepted all the little girl said..
The children became quiet and just glowed, there walking toward them was an Indian from North America, he was so tall and moved smoothly as he came up to the seat, on his head was a Great Bears head dress, which made him seem much taller. A few steps behind him there walked a very large bear that seemed to radiate colours and warmth,” I welcome you both” The Indian said with a booming voice that seemed to echo around the Valley. “I am Running Bear who is the Spirit guide to our Lady, also the keeper of our children here, you are Granddad and Grandma, and now you are also Granddad and Grandma to all our children, I see that our Sadie has made you comfortable in your new seat, May you spend many hours in our light and ways, with the understanding that it is pure love, that makes the building blocks of all you see and become aware of.”
With that Running Bear shimmered in the light and faded into the distance, with a wave of colour that gave them both such a feeling of belonging and love they could only accept, yet not fully understand. The children laughed and Granddad and Grandma knew they had picked up their lack of understanding, as they sent them warm thought to quiet any questions.
Sadie said to them that they had not noticed that Shuma had gone to a nearby tree and settled down to sleep, “Shuma” so that was the name of the Great bear that came in with Running Bear, “Yes that’s him she whispered, you will find him here somewhere, he wanders around to see that all is well, and is the companion of RB.” she said.
RB, they understood was the shortened name for Running Bear.
“Shuma is there for the children to be able to cuddle and feel protected by his presence, if they are uneasy about something he is there, and sometimes they seem to just cuddle him as I do. Sometimes we all play games with him as you both will see” Sadie said.
The light seemed to be fading around them and Granddad said to Grandma that it was time that they returned home, so they both bid the children goodnight and thanked them for being there to meet them. “Night, Night” the children chorused with colours tingling with their voices, forgetting that they said there was no night there unless they thought it so.
Granddad and Grandma walked a little way from the seat, and there the garden gate opened and let them through then they just accepted that all they had to do was walk up the garden into their cottage, the evening was that lovely Summer warm, with just a cool breeze that seemed to have a voice on it that said “night Granddad, night Grandma” that drifted through, still it sounded like Sadie’s voice.
